It Was in May

Byl mesyats may

Directed by Marlen Khutsiyev
Soviet Union, 1970
Drama, TV Movie


A few days after the unconditional surrender of German troops, a group of Soviet soldiers is billeted at a farmyard which the war somehow never seems to have reached. This apparently peaceful picture is eerily undermined when the Red Army soldiers are confronted with the full extent of Nazi terror.
